No - the water heater was from a local place called Lowes. And if you listened to that Attic show you know that didn't go well. I really, really like doing things myself on my home when I can. Growing up I learned a lot about carpentry, electrical, some plumbing, painting, etc. so I'm pretty good at most of it. I finished my basement by myself. It just takes time and hard word work. Plus, so many contractors these days seem to just be out to rip you off. And that really bothers me. Anyway, it was kind of a fun job to do.
